Taking place this week is DARPA’s 2018 Electronic Resurgence Initiative (ERI) Summit, the defense research agency's first gathering to address the direction of US technology manufacturing as Moore's Law slows down, and how the agency can jumpstart alternative efforts to ensure continued performance scaling. To that end, in an interesting and unexpected move from the summit, Intel has announced that it would offer a royalty-free license for its Advanced Interface Bus (AIB) to participants of the agency’s Common Heterogeneous Integration and Intellectual Property (IP) Reuse Strategies (CHIPS) program. The move will help interested parties to design SoCs utilising heterogeneous components made using different process technologies. Modern, complex chips are hard to manufacture and equally hard to design, as they frequently contain a number of different...
